web hosting server specs?


New Member
what should the specs of a web hosting server be?
i am thinking of getting:
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2GHz
2 gigs of ram
160 gigabyte first hard drive
80 gigabyte second hard drive
10 mbps port
1500 gigabyte t1 bandwidth
centos linux
cpanel control panel

i am wondering if i should make any edits to it
I would try and upgrade the hard drives... Also, a 100mbit port would be much more powerful.

Don't oversell the server and you should be fine.
ok, and i may oversell it a tiny bit(like 5 or 10 gigs of bandwidth and like 500 mb of space, not egnouf to make a diffrence, and i will upgrade the hard drives to 250 gigs, that good? and get a 100 mbps port

I would say if the hard drives were 250GB in size you would be much better off and won't have issues down the road.

I personally would sell and price the packages by bandwidth amount. If you are going to oversell, be careful and watch your server loads.
It all depends on if you plan on using that for a long time. I would recommend a 100MBPS port as others said, and a main HDD of atleast 250GB, and a backup of around the same.

Here's a breakdown of our shared server specs:
Core2Quad Q6600
500GB SATA II Hard Drive (we have external backup space outside of the DC)
100MBPS port
